Transition Programs

**Summer Program Update 1/12/2021**

UNT WISE would like to host our in-person summer programming on campus, however UNT has not made a decision whether we are able to or how they may have to look different this year. Ultimately, our in-person summer programs are to be determined. We will update VR Counselors and our website once UNT makes decisions about our ability to host these programs.

UNT WISE does have a virtual summer program that will be an option for students whether in person programming occurs or not. More details on the virtual summer program will be sent out to VR Counselors and updated on our website in the coming weeks.
